I am a complete beginner and I don't really know anything about photography. All I know is that I really want to get into this as a hobby and learn the ins and outs. I've been researching cameras quite a bit, but unfortunately I don't know enough about them to understand the importance of some of the features. I just know that I want to get a camera capable of high quality images and I don't want to sacrafice quality for ease of use because I am willing to take the time and learn some of the more advanced aspects of photography. With that said, which is the better choice for image quality alone? The Nikon D50 or the D40? I've read that both are really good cameras and I keep seeing people say how the D40 is easier in some aspects than the D50. Does the increased ease of use come at a loss of image quality in some areas or is the D40 a better camer all the way around? My main areas of interest would be mostly outdoor landscape scenes and macros if that matters much.
